Mayowa Nicholas emerged female winner of Elite Model Look Nigeria 2014. Since then, she’s walked at the best shows and is now being featured on Vogue and model.com as one of the best.
Nigeria couldn’t be more proud of the young starlet, who has walked at major fashion shows in Paris and Milan, Balmain, Hermes, such as Dior, Prada, Missoni, Dolce and Gabbana, to name a few.
After strutting the runway across the globe for various fashion week activities, she ‘s been listed among Vogue’s “The 15 New Faces That Ruled Fall 2016” at the 11th spot.
Here’s what Vogue had to say about her:
Hometown: Lagos, Nigeria
Season highlights: Prada, Miu Miu, Dior, Dries Van Noten

The face! The body! The breakthrough moment! It was clear that Nicholas was a star back when she won Nigeria’s round of Elite Model Look back in 2014, but Fall provided her with a moment in the spotlight. Whether she was appearing at Miu Miu alongside Adriana Lima or walking Dior and Prada for the first time, Nicholas was drumming up excitement—and making a name for herself—wherever she turned up this month.”
As if that was not impressive enough, Nicholas has also been named among the “Top Newcomers F/W 2016” by Models.com. Here’s what they had to say; “Mayowa has come a long way from winning the Elite Model Look in her home country of Nigeria.
Her steely gaze and fierce walk earned her buzz at top shows last season, but it was this go around that she shined bright. Turns at Miu Miu, Dior, Dries Van Noten, Mugler, Prada, Topshop Unique and a Loewe closing spot sealed the deal as a girl to watch.”
We’re loving all this positivity surrounding Mayowa and we will continue to support her as she makes Nigeria proud on the international fashion scene. What do you think about Mayowa’s nominations? Does she stand a chance at winning.
